Does anyone know if Limehouse Blues (1934) is PD. I've looked all over for it but have never found a copy of it or even know if it even exists.

It stars George Raft and Anna May Wong.

So its PD?

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have before issued on home video so it's unlikely it will find its way here.

For Anna May Wong, I will bear up under the indignity with great fortitude.

According to IMDB: "One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since."

Too bad (if true). It sounds like an interesting film
